Just wondering if anybody has experience between these two shoes. Both look very similar and attractive as well. If anyone has worn both or has experience with either shoe, please share their defining characteristics.
Interestingly, the AE salesman told me that the LaSalle is a Delray that was redesigned for Nordstrom. Said Nordstrom requested the changes and worked with AE on coming up with the LaSalle. From comparing the two in person, the LaSalle is significantly slimmer where the balls of the feet sit. and has less tapering at the toe. It also is a darker brown and has the bulkier toe stitching, which I wasn't thrilled with. I went with the Delray.
I bought the lasalle in the current 2/300 sale and am very happy with it. I asked the sale associate which he'd recommend between the two and he said the lasalle. He mentioned something about the aesthetics but also that it has their slightly cushioned insole in it, which is definitely comfortable.
But I don't really feel like you could go wrong with either.
Both shoes are on the 8-108 last, so there is no difference from that standpoint.
Dude, 99.9% of people are not going to notice the difference. Seriously. They are nearly identical. I guess the real question is do I look fatter in the mirror or in real life?
